1 medium sized aubergine, 1 big potato, 150gms cauliflower, 500gms basmati rice, 800gms chicken, salt to taste

Directions:
Directions:
Slice the aubergine and potato in thick round shape. Cut the cauliflower into 5-6 pieces. Deep fry them in vegetable oil until brown (they dont have to be fully cooked, you just need the colour and the fried taste).

Cut the chicken into 8 pieces and boil it in salt water for 20-25 minutes

Soak the rice in water for 15 minutes and drain

Now, in a big pot place the deep fried vegetables at the bottom. Sprinkle a little salt. Place the chicken on top of the veggies. Then spread the drained rice on the top. Sprinkle some salt again. Add about 600ml of water and bring it to boil.

When the water simmers down, reduce the heat to low. Cover the pot with a lid. Make sure all the sides of the pot are on the stove. If not, rotate in turn. In 12-15 minutes, the most beautiful rice dish is ready

Maqlooba means upside down. Traditionally, this dish is turned upside down in a large plate so that all the vegs and chicken are on top and the rice at the bottom.
